Welcome to my blog of little bits of randomness from me and my amazing life. I have been inspired by all the lovely bloggers out there that I decided that it is high time that I join you all and I look forward to receiving your feedback.
I enjoy all things photographic (although I am only an amateur and use a point and shoot camera) and craft, and intend to share some of this with you .
whooo whooo..... it's Friday again.....yeah!!!!! That means tomorrow is Saturday and I can do more crafting with both of my new fabric parcels..... have I got a few things up my sleeve????? Well dear friends... you'll need to wait. All I can say is now I have my new overlocker up and running.......
Hi, I have finally got around to actually completing a scrapbook page - it feeelllllsss sooooo goooooddddd. Yes I am also enjoying sewing, doing the markets and selling my items online - I do still have a soft spot for all things scrapping - especially collecting stash and papers. I love this Kaiser line and just had to have it, I found inspiration from two different sources and came up with this......
I spent the morning getting my Cranberry Lane facebook page up and running... so now fingers crossed. I completed a scrapbook page that has been sitting for ages just waiting but as usual I still need to put the title on, and I have finally got the overlocker out of the box! Miss A would like another T-shirt made so that will be my first project to complete with my new machine - better get to it.
What a waste ..... well really .....no....,today has been. I had wonderful plans of crafting, sewing etc. but my sister decided facebook.... ok.... so instead of playing with and learning my new overlocker, I have been well surfing the facebook pages and having a real blast from the past finding people from my past and trying to make contact. Anyway better get back incase someone out there actually remembers me......
I am now officially on FACEBOOK - what do I do now? I have been spending ages as is always the case when I get on the computer (and I thought blogging was tricky) - and just looking around and getting yelled at by Mr 16 "DO IT YOURSELF" fine I say but what is it that I'm actually doing???? I keep asking. Hopefully something will evolve and I will work out just exactly what I am doing. Feel free to come by and be my friend and I guess it will be a work in process as I learn how to upload photos and have a chat and catch up with friends from another time - (looking forward to it).
So anyway, there's this mini storm this afternoon - I think it's possibly the only storm we've had from the season - it's gone now, but left this........ very pretty to look at - shame about the power lines:)
I thought I'd also have a show and tell......... this is what I got for Mother's Day yum, yum ...... and
can't wait to have a play
and here's what I've been working on........
Don't forget to come and visit us Saturday at the Ipswich Handmade Expo, Bundama Turf Club.
I have spent this looonnnnggg weekend (the last for a while) adding to my Cranberry Lane range. Along with my skirts, shorts and tops, I now have t-shirts. Not the bought from the shops and have an applique added type..... but a 100% handmade t-shirt. Yes that's right I changed the sewing needle to a ball point used t-shirting fabric in both girls and boys prints carefully cut the ribbing for the neckline etc etc..... I have had a ball and of course Miss A wants everything added to her wardrobe...... wrong size honey. My clothing range caters from approx 2 yrs - 8 yrs. I have also had to order more labels woohoo :) Of course anyone wishing to view my items will have to come to the next Handmade Expo at Ipswich - or check out my Made It store.
I live in sunny Brisvegas. I am a wife of 19 years, and a mother to 2 teens - 16 and almost 13, and adopted mum to appox 15 0 - 2 year olds that I care/develop/educate (yes - educate!) for on a daily basis at work. My hobby at this moment is scrapbooking although I have dabbled in others.
